The Eye Research Foundation has been successfully conducting clinical trials since 1998.  Founded by Linda Wirta and Dr. Wirta, our mission is to provide a highly responsive clinical site where the latest in eye and cosmetic treatments can be tested with the highest standards of compliance and accuracy.

Our center is staffed by three physicians, and a clinical staff that includes a clinical manager (Linda Wirta) and six certified clinical coordinators who are double-certified as COA’s (Certified Ophthalmic Assistants).  In addition, ancillary staff of Clinical Coordinator assistants, phlebotomists, and clerical/data-entry personnel are available.  We have extensive experience in phase I-IV clinical trials, and have capacity for overnight Phase I and PK studies on site.  Our areas of expertise include glaucoma/ocular hypertension, dry eye, presbyopia, blepharitis, post-cataract, cosmetic indications, healthy-normal studies, Japanese bridging studies, and other ophthalmic products.  We specialize in single-site, Phase I, ophthalmology studies.
